This is a Blackstar Artisan 10AE Ltd Ed 10th Anniversary valve combo. It’s in celebration of 10 years of glorious Blackstar tone. The Artisan 10AE is honed for home and studio use and has a wealth of features and a super cool retro look. It’s a low gain, classic crunch amp that uses an EL34 in the power amplifier and an ECC83 in the preamp stage for superlative, warm British crunch. In this model we have included a hot pre-amp Boost for authentic classic rock / indie rhythm playing and vocal Billy Gibbons inspired leads. In addition the patented ISF control gives access to more distortion flexibility than any other single-ended valve amplifier on the market.
